The Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry, the Viterbi School of Engineering Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences Department of Biological Sciences jointly offer the minor in craniofacial and dental technology. This minor is designed to prepare engineering, pre-dental, pre-medical and biological sciences undergraduates to enter the dental biotechnology industry as well as to introduce them to recent innovations in craniofacial sciences and therapeutics. The course work introduces students to concepts in dental and craniofacial sciences and technology, tissue engineering, molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry and biotechnology as well as applications to dental diagnostics, imaging and dental therapies (dental implants, restorative dentistry, salivary diagnostics).
This minor requires a minimum of 16 units outside your home department; further, at least 16 units must be unique to the minor.
Please see a biomedical engineering, biological sciences or Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry adviser for specific program requirements.
